Rogue Spice Canteen + Bar

A popular spot for delicious South East Asian street food!

Shannon Oey's Rogue Spice Canteen +Bar has earned a serious following thanks to its aromatic and flavoursome menu of Asian bites. Succulent ribs, mouth-watering curries and finger-licking wings are just a portion of what's on offer. The restaurant now resides inside the Judy walls after expanding from Brunswick Central (which continues to operate as a takeaway and delivery location) in early 2016. The new restaurant space has been overhauled to unveil some of the natural elements of the space while maintaining a clean and comfortable aesthetic. Tables have been set up to cater for group dining – which could not be easily accommodated at the first location – while bench seating provides a great opportunity for people watching.

Rogue Spice Canteen + Bar offers eight dishes for lunch and dinner, with dinner seeing portion sizes increased to cater for shared dining (or extra hungry patrons). Dishes such as 12-hour pork belly Penang curry, char-grilled coconut beef ribs and twice cooked red duck curry will have you salivating as soon as the aromas hit your nostrils, with eye-catching plating increasing the sensory feast. All dishes are gluten and dairy-free except for the roti. Rogue Spice Canteen + Bar will soon be serving a range of South East Asian-inspired cocktails using similar ingredients to those used in the food as well as a selection of Asian beers and some Australian favourites.
